Publisher Comments:

Practical and comprehensive, The Bedford Researcher demystifies research, presenting it as a process that students can master. Thoroughly up-to-date with coverage of electronic sources and tools integrated into every step, it is the best text for conducting research in the electronic age. Now clearer and more concise, the second edition is designed for quick reference and responsive to real student needs. The innovative and easy to use companion Web site offers additional resources and tools — including the new Bedford Bibliographer.
